#Consume a limit of 1 soda per week. Back to success! No soda this week. Really - at this point, when I have a craving - it's usually the idea of soda and not the real thing that I desire. But I kind of miss the burn as it goes down my throat. Ahhh. This can be re-lived with club soda, which I think is okay for you - unless someone tells me otherwise. # Do Push-Up's 3xs a week. Done. But mostly because I will be finishing up the week today and tomorrow - sick kiddo, weird work schedule - I'm not sure where the week went. # Walk 2xs a week. Done- again, because I'm doing it today and tomorrow. # Reduce calories and keep food journal. I've been practicing Mindful Eating - which does reduce my intake. But I've kicked myself almost weekly for making this a goal - knowing how I feel about it. I think that the Mindful Eating is my best approach to meeting this goal. # Purchase no more than 5 boxes per week. Back on track here. Frozen veggies (couldn't find in a bag), cream cheese, and a box of wheat thins for SuperBowl day.
Knowing that we are at the halfway point is a bit disappointing - the numbers on the scale are not dipping as I would like, in fact they don't move. However, I believe that I have improved my health on several levels - even if I won't be featured in any fitness magazine any time soon as a "before" / "after" feature. Having the pedometer has completely opened my eyes to the lack of movement on my regular days and then need to crank it up a notch. I think awareness is an important step in this process - so I'm trying to embrace and celebrate it.
Deep secrets about me: Along Steve's secret - I'll confess with my musical talents. I play several instruments - the piano (at a pretty expert level- though I'm sure I'm rusty from lack of practice), the flute (at an okay-dokey level), the trumpet (I could likely crank out a scale or two), and percussion (xylophone, marimba, tri-tom drums) not so much on the drum set - though I could keep good time (which is really like Drums 101). Also, I've composed a piece for a complete concert band. It's been preformed a couple of times by my hometowns municipal band.
I consider writing blip-its about myself a form of torture, but can talk about my interests, plans, dreams, and ideas for hours. I'm 37 years old, hapily married and mother to one human child and two dogs. My life, career, and eating habits are ever-evolving. I would like to lose about 30+ pounds and still be able to enjoy food and life.
I'm 41 years old, single, and I live with two dogs and two cats. I'm experimenting with semi-vegetarianism and recently gave up diet soda. I work from home, hate sports, love junk food, and would like to lose about 50 pounds. And win the lottery.
